Amigurumi means “knitted or crocheted doll” in Japanese and that’s exactly what it is. I really wish I knew how to crochet because the dolls I’ve seen are adorable. All the dolls parts are crocheted and stuffed then attached together. This is a great little how to tutorial about attaching these parts and finishing your doll.

A friend of mine just added her first handmade item to her Etsy Store a cute little Amigurumi Crochet Cupcake Charm.

Recycle and go green. Turn your old tee into a new snazzy decorative pillow that’s oh so comfy. I hate getting rid of my old clothes.  They say if you haven’t worn it in over a year it needs to GO!. NO!!! Now you can keep those old trendy t-shirts around by turning them into new decorative pillows, that’s just as trendy and hip and totally your style!   This is a fun easy quick sewing project that doesn’t cost much. Just buy yourself some pillow stuffing (fiber fill) from your local craft store or wal-mart, the softer the better. Cut off the top end of the shirt stuff and sew the ends. Voila, you have yourself  new trendy pillow that has that same old comfortable t-shirt feel.

Here’s one I made for my etsy store:

I’ve decided to add Mobiles to my etsy shop I’ve been sketching some designs and have finally completed my first Mobile. It is a simple black and white design with circles. I like to call it “well rounded”. This is a light weight fabric mobile constructed with, felt and left over scraps of polyester fleece. What’s great about this design is that it can be used as hanging mobile decor or a wall hanging. The circles make it very versatile, so it’s easy to change the look to whatever design you can imagine. This mobile’s classic colors makes it a great piece of art for any room.

So my Mario and Luigi hat sale have picked up this month. I’ve been so busy keeping up with orders, I have not had the time to work on any Christmas/Holiday projects for Etsy. ;( Me and my baby have also had a cold forever, which doesn’t help anything. I hope we get better soon.

Christmas Snow

Christmas Snow

I love Christmas! Being a Christian Family we don’t celebrate Halloween, so I’m just going to by pass that holiday in my etsy store and bring on the Christmas Fun! I currently have some greeting card ideas in the works and also want to make some felt ornaments for the Christmas tree. I think felt ornaments will be a great child friendly alternative to those glass Christmas baubles. I’m trying to think of fun and unique themes for these ornament as I would like to offer them in sets of maybe five or more. Right now I’m thinking of Angels, a coffee set for the coffee lovers, Mario and Luigi, for my little brother, and maybe a penguin set because I love penguins! If there is anything you would like to see as a set of Christmas ornaments leave me a comment!

PICTURES COMING SOON . . . I need to get crafty 🙂

I just made a listing on my etsy shop to sell my Mario and Luigi hats in a set. This is great because you can now get both hats for the same flat rate shipping. Thank you USPS for the large Priority Mailers. It’s been going well so far. I’ve sold three sets, which helps to move my Luigi hat inventory, because before I was only getting orders for Mario. I also found a slightly better green fleece, still a little dark for my taste, but much more vibrant. I need to get my little brothers over to model the new hats and update pictures 😉
